Plant Features

The Purple White Trimmed African Violet, a beautiful variant of the Saintpaulia family, is admired for its striking purple flowers with distinctive white edges. This plant forms a neat, compact rosette of dark green, velvety leaves, creating a lush backdrop for the vibrant blooms. It's a small, low-maintenance plant, perfect for brightening up indoor spaces such as windowsills, office desks, or small shelves.

For troubleshooting, brown leaf edges can be caused by over-fertilization or fluoride in the water. Use room temperature water and fertilize sparingly. Insufficient light is a common reason for African Violets not blooming. Position the plant in a spot with bright, indirect sunlight. Wilting leaves could be due to either underwatering or overwatering. Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Aphids and mealybugs can sometimes be a problem. If you notice pests, treat the plant with an appropriate insecticide or neem oil.
